LOS ANGELES - If you remember Lauren, she's the supposed regular girl in Microsoft's new "Laptop Hunters" ad where she's paid cash and then picks herself out an HP Pavilion laptop for under $1,000 dollars. Of course Lauren has a negative experience visiting the Apple store in the advert finding only one Mac laptop in her price range. It's scandalous!
It turns out that the lovely miss Lauren DeLong is actually an LA-based, SAG-eligible actress. Not that anything is wrong with that! But I feel duped! I thought Lauren was just some regular girl, randomly selected by the Microsofties.
"I'm just not cool enough to be a Mac person," Lauren said in a sarcastic tone while driving in the Microsoft ad. Maybe that's because she's only acting like a regular person who's 'not cool enough' to be a Mac person. You see, that's what actors do, they play pretend for money. Not that anything is wrong with that! Don't believe the hype people... it's all pretend! I can sleep sound again knowing the truth.
CONGRATS LAUREN! Best of luck on your next audition for a national computer brand ad. [video after jump]
